dude just because its a truck does not mean shit about it having it to be dirty. some people like it thats cool. I dont bash them about it. But like me and Scott here we dont like our truck dirty. We take care of our paints on our rigs. You don't see a guy saying with his 50,000+ dollar f150 saleen saying its a truck its so posed to be dirty. You know how idiotic that would sound. Just because its a truck doesn't mean shit about it having to be dirty all the time.

Whoa JT, take it easy on the newbies, he deesnt know how we take care of our trucks I LOLd at the "Laser Wash" thing. Yes it is a car wash. Its an automatic carwash that does not use the brushes to wash the truck, it uses pressurized water like a giant pressure washer.

Yes Mike, it may be a truck, but it is my pride and joy. Next to the fiance, i pretty much love it like i would a woman. Ask around, I'm "Mr Clean" of the forum and has went as far as disassembling my truck to wash it. It is something i paid alot of money (to me) for and it is something i intend to kkep clean. It does get used when needed though. I have taken my truck though two to three feet mud, a shit load of snow and sandy beaches, but when im done, its gets cleaned up again!

I have run through the laser wash a few times to get the grime off before i go to town on my truck. I don't clean my truck as much as use to or should but when i do, its an all day event lol. I don't half ass it and that's prob why i don't do it as much anymore NO TIME.

sorry guys, didnt mean to sound so serious... Im a big shit talker, youll find that out

im sure ill continue to say "its a truck"... but I really do admire your trucks and how awesome they look in your pics

Everytime I DO wash my truck (not often) I say to myself "Self, I WILL keep my truck cleaner" but I am just way too lazy.

Long story short, good work keepin your rigs so clean! im really just jealous I dont have the patience for it

Lol I know man, I didn't take u seriously, I get flak all the time for it, just my nature. Some people have it others don't. My fiance could care less how clean her car is. As long as it gets her from point A to point B. Me on the other hand, I like to get to point B in style haha. I have NEVER NEVEr thrown a piece of trash in my floor, allowed someone to smoke in my truck(s). I make it a habit to wsh the truck every friday or saturday and try to on wednesdays lol

I've heard that washing and waxing too often hurts the paint. That's a lie, isnt it?
